That really shouldn’t come as a big surprise to most folks here in Birmingham, AL. We tied with seven other cities for the honor of the 4th most sports obsessed city in the United States. The other folks with that honor of having 62% of their residents as “very interested” in sports according to the Nielsen report: Green Bay/Appleton, WI; Providence/New Bedford, RI; Denver, CO; Rochester, NY; Louisville, KY; Cleveland/Akron, OH; and San Antonio, TX.

So who’s #1? Well, 66% of Columbus, Ohio’s residents are rabid sports fans apparently.

It's actually impressive considering most of the towns we're tied with have professional sports teams.
